2014-12-31 18:29:33 +0200 asked a question writer document with math objects created in new install won't display correctly in older versions

I created a writer document and embeded many formula's using math (my L3 maths assignment). When I opened that document on another computer with an older version of libre office the formula's contained lots of odd symbols instead of things like "=". This is very unerving to say the least (lots of work to be lost). I have updated the libre office on my second compter and all displays well now but I can'tunderstand why there is such incomptibility between just a slightly older version of libre office.

Are my documents safe ? can I only open math formulas using the same version of math they were created with ?
